Fabulous Friday Challenge: Just Something to "Chair"

Woot!
Friday means it is time for another Fabulous Friday Challenge.
Yep, friends. This is a good one.
Your challenge is to make a paper crafted project inspired by this photo.



(Insert wild clapping here!)
So here's more dirt about this challenge: It's up to you pick exactly how you it inspires you. It could be the colors. It could be all those glorious patterns. It could be... well.. that the photo involves (really, really cool) chairs. It could be something else. Whatever it is, make something (... and have a little fun doing it too)!
Post your completed project on your blog by midnight EST on Wednesday, Nov. 5th.
Then, click on the title of your post, copy the URL at the top and link it using the Mr. Linky below.
Be sure to link back to this post and be sure to include in your post how you were inspired. (Just so we all know how you were inspired.)
By the way, if you don't have a blog, you can post your project to this flickr group and link it to Mr. Linky as soon as you've grabbed the URL.
I'll pick one participant at random to score something fun from the Moxie Fab World prize drawer as thank you for playing along. That lucky person will be announced on Friday, Nov. 7th!
(By the way, who was the winner from the last Fabulous Friday Challenge? That would be Dee Tollaksen. Congrats, Dee! Please drop me an email by Nov. 7th at teriishere AT gmail Dot com. Please include the words MFW Winner in the subject line.)

Yep. I'm thinking it just might be... wink!

Planning On This...

Hi, Moxie Fabbers!
Is it just me or does it seem like the new thing in paper crafting and scrapbooking is planners to organize your life?
I mean, it's like planners and supplies to decorate planners with are coming on strong.
Check this out.

There are stamps.




And don't miss this set from Sweet Stamp Shop. It sure looks fun. This one looks fun too. 

There are kits.


And check out Cocoa Daisy. They have a day planner kit program.


And let's not forget all the decorative tapes and stickers out there. They all work so well with planners.

A little decorative tape to color code your events and activities with?


Yep. That's what I am talking about.

This planner thing looks like it's got some legs.
I mean, there's more coming.
Did you see this big announcement from Webster's Pages? They are coming out with the Color Crush collection of planners and planner accessories.  


I must admit that I'm planning on keeping an eye on this planner thing. I wonder if we might see even more planner stuff in the coming months.

So what do you think about all this planner stuff? Do you keep a planner? Does the thought of keeping one make your head spin? Lay it on me. I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Teri 

Winner. Winner.

Well, you know the rest.
Wednesdays are always a good day to name winners.
The winner of the Moxie Fab World Surprise Prize from this post here is Harriet Skelly (10/17 @ 12:12 p.m.). Congrats, Harriet! Please drop me an email at teriishere AT gmail DOT com by 11/5. Please include MFW Winner in the subject line.

Fun Finds on Friday

Friday.
How I adore thee.
Friday, you really are my favorite day of the week.
And I can think of a better way to kick Friday off than with some fun finds. So you know the drill. Let's do this.

Fun Find #1
How cool is this page from Meghann Andrew? Super cool if you ask me.

Head over to her post on the Chickaniddy Crafts blog to get a better look. Plus Meghann will show you how she stitched the cool heart in the middle of her page.

Fun Find #2
Did you know you can dry emboss with a stencil? Yep. You can.
Head over this post from Yana Smakula on the Hero Arts blog to learn how she did and how she used this technique on one fine looking card. High 5, Yana!


Fun Find #3
How fun is this card by Jody Morrow?!


I super dog dig it with high emphasis on the super dog thing. Bravo, Jody! Bravo!

Fun Find #4
Do you like to journal? Got any interest in making your own journal? 
Run (... don't walk) to this post over on the Gossamer Blue blog. Diane Payne put together one neat journal! Visit her post to see the whole thing and to get the how-to.


Fun Find #5
Like to read? Now you can mark your pages in style, thanks to Heather Leopard. Heather's put together a couple cool bookmarks and has some great tips for making ones like them. Head over to her post on the Ameican Crafts blog for the scoop.


So that's what I have for you.
Oh wait. Scratch that. I've got one other thing for you.
How about a teeny tiny Moxie Fab World surprise prize? 

Just leave a comment on this post by midnight EST on Monday, Oct. 20th, I'll pick one of you to score the prize. I'll announce the winner on Wednesday, Oct. 22nd.
Alright, so that's really what I have. Make a good day, friends!

Oh My Moxie Fab!



Let's just not work today. 
Let's just forget about housework, errands and all that jazz.
Let's just go for a ride.

Sound good?

Heads Up, Pt. 2

Hi all!
Here's the update you've been waiting for on the Cool Canning Jars and World Card Making Day Inspiration and Sketch challenges.
It took a little head scratching but we were able to get the linking up issue addressed.
Unfortunately, in the process, it appears we've lost the links that were previously submitted for all three challenges. (Yes, guys, I know. It stinks.)
In light of the linking up issues and also losing all of those awesome links, we are going to extend the due date for all three of these challenges.
You now have until October 26th to link up your project or projects to these challenges:



If you had already linked a project to one of these challenges, please take a minute and go look at the link up list to see if your link is there. If it is not there, please re-add it.
If you had previously commented that you were having trouble linking up to a challenge and left a link to your project in the comments field of any of those challenges, I've spent some time adding those links to the link up. Would you also please take a look at the challenges and make sure your challenge link is there? If not, please add it.
Also, if you hadn't had a chance to play yet and are inspired by any of these challenges, I'd like to invite you to please come join the fun.

The winners of the World Card Making Day Inspiration and Sketch challenges will now be announced on Wednesday, Oct. 29th.
The winners of the Cool Canning Jars Challenge will now be announced on Oct. 30th.

Thanks so much to all of you for your patience and understanding as we've sorted through this.

Let's get back to the fun stuff,
Teri

Heads Up

Hi guys!
It has come to my attention that you are having some issues linking up your challenge projects to the Cool Canning Jars and World Card Making Day Inspiration and Sketch challenges.
Sorry to make you pull your hair out. That's just not a good thing.
I'm currently working with support behind the scenes to work through those technical difficulties so you can get those projects linked up.
Please bear with me and technical support as we get things fixed so all your projects can be linked. As soon as we do, I'll announce new deadlines for those challenges and announcement dates for the winners.
Thanks for your patience!

Teri
